7:05 am
related assault but could have set off a chain reaction crash. >> the driver in the victim vehicle, when shot did collide into another vehicle in front of him. >> reporter: no injuries in that minor collision but a moving target, a major freeway, and weekend travel, it all could have ended so much worse. >> gunfire anywhere, but especially on the freeway, with cars moving at speed is obviously extremely hazardous and could be lethal. >> that was debora villalon reporting. those two victims this morning are in stable condition. police say they are not cooperating with them and there's no real description yet of the suspects or their car. police are looking for any help they can get on this. if you have any information call sfpd. the valley fire is 50% contained this morning. it's ruined 74,500 acres. residents in middletown were allowed to go home yesterday. that was the first time since the fire erupted last weekend. houses built decades ago were

♪ thank you for joining us on this sunday. isn't that a beautiful view of the sun on its way up? we do have near record heat in the forecast for today. i'll show you the spots that may actually tie or break a record and have the number phosyour area coming up. this morning hundreds were about to dive into the bay for charity. they were headed from angel island to tiburon but ktvu fox 2 east allie rasmus joins us now with news of a sudden cancellation for all those swimmers. what is going on? >> reporter: that's right. it's because of an unprecedented change in the current here between angel island and the golden gate bridge. they did a test run with elite swimmers -- test swim i should say. with elite swimmers. and they say it's not safe for the 600 or so average swimmers
7:13 am
to be out here today for the tiburon swim. there was some disappointment in the crowd when they made the announcement. it was made about 10 minutes ago. but they said it's really for the safety of everyone. on the water here, it looks pretty calm and you couldn't have picked better weather at least above the surface of the water for this sort of event because it's going to be very warm but the current, the tide according to the race organizer was unusual strong and its not safe for most of the swimmers. still 50 elite swimmers will be in the event starting 9:30. they are people who swim professionally and competitively. the organizers feel they are strong enough to be able to handle that current but the rest of the folks out here unfortunately not. i'm going to talk to a swimmer that swam the event before. let's see if i can find her. excuse me, sir. you've swam the event -
7:14 am
>> you want to go to the water? >> reporter: we're actually live here. >> hi. >> reporter: you said you've done this 15 years. there's never been a time when the current cancelled the event. it has to be really unusual. >> it is. i respect bob's decision. he's been thinking about this all day yesterday and last night. they had the elite swim yesterday and even they got a little swept. basically the currents, you can't see from the top how strong it is underneath. but it's a decision that is safe safe and the best decision to make. for people that haven't done it before especially or people doing it for fun or people that cannot swim through or beat the current. >> what kind of challenges can a strong current like that pose? >> you look up and all of a sudden you're swept 200 or 300 yards. at this point with the current swimming that way, getting pulled that way some of the swimmers may be already at the golden gate bridge by the time the kayak could maybe go over and get them.
7:15 am
then you have 1,000 swimmers that are swimming a course that you don't have enough kayaks to get them all out of the water. there's no way to rescue them all or hang on to the boat. once they get into trouble. once a swimmer gets into trouble it's almost too late. you have to get them out. you don't have much time. maybe four or five minutes. >> thank you so much for that insight. this event has been going on for 15 years. this is the first time they've had to cancel it for the majority of the people who signed up. there are about 600 people who signed up. there are still 50 elite swimmers, professional, competitive swimmers from around the world who are going to be competing in this. they still will get a chance to go into the water and do this race but for the rest of the folks, a bit of a disappointment but all for safety's sake. back to you. >> very disappointing. you say hundreds of swimmers? it's a charity event. they pay about $300 apiece to be in the event. what is going to happen to the money, that is going to the
7:16 am
charities? like hospice by the bay or hypertension association. do you know yet? >> reporter: well, the organizer says he's going to give a credit to all the swimmers who came out here today, who can't go in the water and can't compete. they are going to get a credit and hopefully the hope is they come back next year. >> allie rasmus, thank you so much. again, that swim cancelled today. time now 7:16. pope francis today opens his first full day in cuba before a crowd of hundreds of thousands of people. as reporter lydia zarn eit's explains he kicked off the morning mass with the cuban president raul castro. >> reporter: through fanfare and celebration pope francis arrived in havana cuba, the first person to greet him as he stepped off the plane, cuban president castro, the groundbreaking visit a clear effort by the pope to rebuild the foundation of the church there as well as strengthen u.s. and cuban relations.
7:17 am
he says the process of normalization of relations between two nations after years of estrangement is a price. >> we will begin with a prayer. >> reporter: hundreds of cuban americans traveled to cuba to witness history. coming together as a family to see the pope just truly means a lot. everything that we believe in, just to see it happen here with the pope is incredible. >> it's a dream come true. >> reporter: martha sarah is battling pancreatic cancer, hasn't been to cuba since age 10. >> i know that -- the catholic church, the pope is making great strides, and this is the moment. >> a moment decades in the making, now that cuba is open to the world, pope francis, the first latin american pope must now try to fully open cuba to catholicism. well wishers in cuba lined the streets hoping to catch a
7:18 am
glimpse of the pontiff. >> i love this pope. i believe in this pope. i believe the unity of the united states with cuba is a good time to make the move. >> reporter: yesterday president obama and president castro had a rare phone call regarding the pope's visit to both of their nations. the white house said both obama and castro commend the pope for being instrumental in spurring relations between the former cold war foes. tara more rater -- morearty will be traveling for the pope's visit her coverage begins tuesday. six hostages released from yemen, been there five months. the reason they were detained in the first place is still unknown this morning. we do know one is a journalist, the other at least one other, a british citizen. all on their way to oman now, after that country negotiated their release. the arizona man arrested in connection with a series of
7:19 am
freeway shootings in phoenix is speaking out. leslie merritt made his first court appearance this week. >> reporter: we learned a lot in a short amount of time about leslie merritt jr. during his first court appearance this morning. prosecutors say he's a dramatic threat to their community. he appeared in court in a black and white striped jump suit and the judge posed a $1 million cash bond and advised him not to talk without talking to his attorney first. he ignored the advice and said he's not the i-10 shooter. >> the state is asking for a $1 million cash bond for the suspect. >> all i have to say is i'm the wrong guy. i tried to tell the detectives that. my gun has been in the pawn shop the last two months. i have had no access to a weapon. >> reporter: merritt was arrested in a glendale walmart friday night. they say he's forensically linked to the first four freeway shootings that started in august. a city councilman tweeting the
7:20 am
department of public safety linked a 9-millimeter gun shop released to a pawn shop to the first four shootings police said they found a handgun they believe was used in the shootings. what we know about merritt, a landscaper, forefather of two, enthusiastic about guns. as for the motivation behind the shootings, unclear at this time. several local reporters caught one his father friday evening who says they've got the wrong person. >> whoever said he's the i-10 shooter is a (bleep) moron. have a good night. >> merritt now charged with numerous felonies including aggravated assault. the prosecutor said he believes it's domestic terrorism but can't charge merritt with that under current state law. it's his only link to four shootings at the time. authorities say there could be more people, more copycats out there. in los angeles, will carr, fox news. meanwhile in the bay tens of thousands of volunteers picked up tons of trash from california beaches on the 31st

7:33 am
the top of the hour they had to cancel this for everyone safety because the currents were unusually strong. the tiburon swing usually takes people from angel island to tiburon but they did a test swim last night and it's hard to see, maybe from where we're standing. the weather couldn't be more perfect for an event like this but just below the surface of the water there's an unusually strong ebb tide that could be dangerous for swimmers, it could take them all the way to the golden gate bridge before kayakers and other rescues could get to them. that's why they canned of cancelled the event. it must have been a difficult call to make. >> we went into the wee hours of the night looking into the possibilities. safety is the primary concern. it's my responsibility and we worked with experts regarding the tide. it was conclusive it's very
7:34 am
challenging for your average swimmer. professional swimmers, elite swimmers are going to race today. i'm not concerned about them in terms of their ability to complete this but for the rest i was concerned. so we had to cancel it for the others. >> reporter: for elite swimmers, should be still a pretty good show. >> it's $10,000 each for male and female and it's the most competitive race in the world. we have the best pool swimmers, open water swimmers. a silver medalist is here. a world champion, who just won three weeks ago in russia. our first olympic candidate that qualified for the olympic swimming team. so the competition is steep. we have five our six women and five or six men, any one of them could win. >> reporter: and there are several charities participating? >> yes, hypertension charity. and hospice by the bay. we've raised $4.5 million since
7:35 am
we started this in 1999. a young man was paralyzed a year and-a-half ago and we are raising money for him as well. this is a platform to raise money for the various charities i talked about. >> reporter: people who sign up can still get a credit if they want it. and you could reschedule it even as soon as next month? >> the next time we do the race, people that showed up today, that showed up to sign up to be in the race will get a credit towards the next one. that is correct. >> reporter: thank you. founder and organizer of the tiburon swim. the event was cancelled for the amateur swimmers, about 600 signed up but the elite swimmers will still get a chance to compete for the $2,500 prize. back to you. >> i think it surprises people, when you talk about the safety. every time the camera pans over to the water how it looks like glass out there. and really how different it is under the surface. are the swimmers you're talking to, the people who are going to participate? are they taking it in stride? >> reporter: they are.
7:36 am
everyone here has been pretty good about it. they've said we're disappointed obviously but we understand that safety comes first. and we appreciate that the organizers were willing to make that call for our safety. seems to be the consensus. thank you. we want to show you the front gate of the chris brown concert, the concord pavilion. there were eight ambulances that came, but no one was transported. no word yet on why they were called. several nearby shopping centers were shut down as all that traffic was leaving the city. a benesia family is missing after their fire at their cabin outside of auburn. the family went missing last
